How often should I service my 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline?
When it comes to your Ford E-250 Econoline, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your E-250 Econoline could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your E-250 Econoline, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your E-250 Econoline running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline problems.
Bring your 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your E-250 Econoline. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Could your 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford E-250 Econoline battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ford E-250 Econoline won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
